June 2013 what’s been happening in the world?

12 Jul
Here are some things to think about.  Any one of these events is bad enough, and these kinds of things have been happening forever, but all of these, plus more, at the same time?  This is only a sampling of what is happening all over the world.  I didn’t add in the mass animal deaths, or much of the political unrest or the wars, or even all of the disasters, because there just is not enough of me to go and figure it all out.  This post would be really, really long.  But I did gather a few of the events that have happened just in June – last month.
Keep in mind the ripple effects that all of these events are going to have.  Disease, no power, famine, lost lives, destroyed crops, destroyed cities, skyrocket cost of living, and so much more.  The devastation is almost too great for my mind to even understand.  

All I can say, is are we prepared for what comes our way?  Because given the stats of what is happening everyday, somewhere, it is only a matter of time before we experience something?  I know we have had some flooding here where I live, but it is nothing compared to what it could have been.  We were really blessed here in Medicine Hat.  Not so for our neighbors, just up the river, and even down from us.  They all got hit pretty hard.

Okay so now onto some of the things that have been happening for the month of June.
